Robin Shirley, CHHC, is the Founding President of Take Back Your Health Int’l, a company that hosts internationally attended health conferences and retreats across the U.S. As an inspiration to women and young adults with chronic illness, she speaks, consults and writes about The Take Back Your Health Lifestyle and how to reduce the symptoms of chronic illness.

She has spoken for the University of Virginia Cardiovascular Center, The Arthritis Foundation, Arthritis Introspective,, The Take Back Your Health Conference, Yogasmoga and will be a speaker at the upcoming TEDxLA 2016 Conference. Robin grew up with out-of-control systemic inflammation, which her doctors labeled as Systemic Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis and Chronic Lyme Disease. At 23 years old, Robin was on track to file for disability and give up on her dream to run her own hospitality company.


After 17 years of experimentation, research and education, she has personally experienced the power of a therapeutic healthy lifestyle on reducing pain and inflammation. Robin is finally free from pharmaceuticals and is currently running the company of her dreams.

Robin is a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and a member of the American Board of Drugless Practitioners. After coaching hundreds of patients with Chronic Lyme Disease, Autoimmune Disease and Depression through her nutrition protocol, Robin launched Chronic Lyme Nutrition, a therapeutic nutrition protocol that teaches Chronic Lyme patients how to eat to reduce inflammation and depression, increase energy and strengthen the immune system.
